Amazon. com: Since The Lightning Thief was published in 2005 it's sold more than a million copies, and the 4 subsequent books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series have been blockbuster bestsellers among kids and adult readers alike. How has the success of the series affected your life? When you had been writing the 1st story starring Percy Jackson, did you ever imagine it would grow to be such a phenomenon?

I hoped the stories would get kids reading, but I never anticipated such exponential growth. That's what it's all about for me. Still, I have trouble thinking in terms of millions. The Lightning Thief was passed around from kid to kid, teacher to teacher, parent to parent, and the series got bigger with each book. It really was a grassroots phenomenon. It was not an overnight success, nor was it heavily marketed at the beginning. I measure success by anecdotes--the kid who told me he never liked books until he found The Lightning Thief, the parent who thanked me for turning her daughter into a reader, the teacher who said I turned her class about simply because they bonded over reading Percy Jackson every single day.

It hasn't changed our life much other than making me busier, but doing some thing I love! We try our best to help keep things simple at residence. I still drive exactly the same auto. My kids go for the identical schools.

Amazon. com: You've talked about that you wrote this series for your son, Haley, who, like the book's hero Percy, has been diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. How does Haley feel about being the inspiration for a bestselling series?

Riordan: Both my sons are usually my first audience. They don't like it when classmates ask them to get my autograph. Recently he came into my office and announced the manuscript he is working on now has a bigger word count than mine! I read the manuscripts to them aloud to produce sure they operate for young readers. Haley likes to play down his importance in the genesis of the series, but I think he's enjoyed growing up with Percy, and I know it has improved his interest in writing. Each are proud, though being teenagers they are also embarrassed by the attention they get at times.

Amazon. com: Percy's stories are based on Greek mythology--classic tales that have been passed down for a sizable quantity of years. What lessons can kids nowadays learn from the ancient myths?

Riordan: The stories have everything--romance, magic, mystery, action, and great characters. They have amazing powers, but they are also very human and topic to jealousy, envy, anger, and so on. The Greek gods are our 1st superheroes. Kids specifically respond to them simply because they are both powerful and accessible. Who wouldn't want to be the son or daughter of a Greek god? By reading regarding the struggles of gods and heroes, we learn a lot about getting human, and that's something that hasn't changed over the millennia.

Amazon. What was it like? com: Have you ever visited Greece?

Riordan: I've been to both Italy and Greece, but only right after I finished the Percy Jackson series, which is ironic. One doesn't should travel there, however, to appreciate the stories from mythology. Those are genuinely universal. Greece truly reminded me quite a bit of my home in Texas--hot, green, hilly, somewhat arid, except the ocean is much greater in Greece.

Amazon. com: Percy's guardian satyr, Grover, is strongly connected to the Earth, the well-being of animals, and humans' emotions. Moreover, Percy's life is comparatively free of technology, in contrast to numerous men and women these days. Is there a message regarding the natural world that you're hoping to convey through Percy and Grover?

Riordan: I don't consciously put messages in the books, because my job is telling a good story, not preaching. I've always been fascinated by the god Pan, and his reported death in ancient times. However, I do pick up on themes from Greek mythology that still resonate inside the contemporary world, and certainly man's relationship to nature is a single of those. It seemed a really relevant theme for modern readers.

Amazon. com: Percy encounters many dangers throughout his adventures--some that could be considered beyond the abilities of a standard 12-year-old. Though we know Percy is no normal kid, exactly where does he find the find the strength to overcome all of the challenges that he encounters?

Riordan: None of us knows what we're capable of until we are named to action. He goes from a 12-year-old who is unsure of himself and his relationship with his pals and family, to a 16-year-old young man who steps up and leads a war to save Olympus. Most heroes are born out of dire circumstances, and Percy is no exception. He's afraid, unsure, doubtful, angry--all the things we would be if we had been named to handle a crisis. Percy could have demigod abilities, but he's an incredibly typical kid in a lot of approaches. But he does the job anyway, and that will be the definition of courage.

Amazon. com: It's often mentioned that writers write about what they know. Were you thinking about the ancient planet when you had been Percy's age? What types of books were your favorites when you were a kid?

Riordan: I've always loved mythology. I taught mythology in my own classroom when I became a teacher, and it was consistently my students' favorite unit. I had a great English teacher who showed me that The Lord from the Rings (the only series I would read at age thirteen) was based on Norse myths, and from then on, I was a mythology buff.
